not to be the case. and that's on me. >> one of the architects of the affordable care act, otherwise known as obama care, joins us now, jonathan gruber. what do you think of the new fix, allowing people going to lose their insurance policies to keep them for another year? what's your reaction? >> my reaction is, i'm sorry we're in this situation. i think that when -- what the president said, exactly right, is the affordable care act is the minimally disruptive way to get to where we need get in america which is to fix our broken and discriminatory insurance markets. people in congress didn't think it was good enough. they wanted to fix the broken insurance markets and make sure no one lost. you can't do that. if you fix the brokeness insurance market some people benefitting from the broken market have to pay more. the president had to deal with the issue. i thought they dealt with it in an effective way by allowing one more year for people to keep their plans. it's a good solution because it takes pressure off the web failure, it gives people more time to sign up. >> to be fair to members of congre

kennedy. it's deeply moving. barack obama loves the kennedy family. ted kennedy was his closest ally. if it wasn't for ted kennedy, it's not clear barack obama would have won in 2008 when he backed obama over hillary clinton. now you get the specter of the two titans of the democratic party, bill clinton and barack obama after being at an awards ceremony for the presidential medal now going there to together to pay respects. it's going to be a poignant moment and important moment. i think it's important i think to remember arlington and remember the flame, not just dallas and conspiracy theories on this 50th anniversary. >> and let me bring ennor clift into this part of the conversation. eleanor, as you take a look at this somber ceremony we're about to see, the laying of the wreath, playing of taps, no one's going to talk. they're just going to remember and reflect. what goes through your mind as you think about the 50 years later, if you will? >> this is a powerful democratic small d and big "d" tradition. you have jack kennedy which i think woke the country up and showed us all wh
obama care, all insurance policies must include ten essential benefits things like maternity care and prescription drug coverage. so if your plan doesn't meet that criteria, the insurance companies send you a cancellation notice. some private insurer will offer new plans. but for some people that could increase premiums. for other people who might qualify for a subsidy under obama care, it could be cheaper. >> what do these million people who just lost their policies in california supposed to do. >> there's a reason that they're doing this. that's because the obama administration wanted to get rid of what they called junk plans and make sure everyone has quality coverage. fortunately for californians, they have a state exchange working better than healthcare.gov but there are still reports of problems there too. >> this is not just happening in california. it's happening all over the country. >> well, that's right, wolf. and what you're seeing here is the administration and the insurance industry knew this was going to happen. the estimates vary widely from 7 million to 12 million
obama care rollout may have hurt democrat terry mcauliffe and his race for governor but not badly enough to spell defeat. he survives a nasty slugfest with tea party republican ken cuccinelli by three percentage points. ooh he just squeaked by. we assembled a full roster of correspondents and analysts to walk us through the results and what they mean to the rest of the country. first up, state of virginia and candy crowley. welcome, candy. so obama care and the government shutdown surely factors in the virginia race but so were women. here is the winner, terry mcauliffe. >> the truth is that this election was never a choice between democrats and republicans. it was a choice about whether virginia would continue the mainstream bipartisan tradition that has served us so well over the last decade, at a time when washington was often broken, just think about what virginia has been able to accomplish when we work together. >> so candy, in the end the tea party took a hit in virginia, but its candidate almost pulled out because of obama care. so how worried should the democrats be despite the
president obama's nominees. >> these nominees deserve at least an up or down vote, yes or no. but republican filibusters deny them a fair vote, any vote, and deny the president his team. gridlock has consequences. it's not only bad for president obama, bad for this body, the united states senate, it's bad for our country. >> minority leader, mitch mcconnell, says democrats are creating a crisis to distract attention from obama care. >> millions of americans are hurting because of a law washington democrats forced upon them. what do they do about it? they cook up some fake fight over judges, a fake fight over judges. that aren't even needed. >> our chief congressional correspondent, dana bash, is on capitol hill following the dramatic, dare i say historic developmentans huge ramificat n ramifications. explain what is going on right now in congress. >> reporter: what's going on right now, wolf, as we speak, actually on the senate floor, is the fruits, if you will, of what the democrats tried to do. obviously republicans see it a whole different way. democrats successfully did, which is we're

princeton university. >>> now to the health of millions of americans under obama care. the president met with insurance company ceos yesterday to discuss his proposed fix to the affordable care act. the tweak would temporarily reinstate policies that were dropped because they didn't comply with obama care regulations. the white house calls the meeting productive but hasn't related any details about possible solutions. on the same day the president suffered an embarrassing setback when dozens of house democrats voted for a republican plan that would gut his signature health care law. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash has that. >> fredericka, the prospect of losing this vote in a big way is what drove democratic leaders earlier in the week to plead with obama officials to do something to fix the canceled policy problem. the president's mea culpa and his new plan softened the blow but for the white house it still stung. 39 house democrats, one-fifth of the caucus, defected and voted for a republican bill allowing people to keep canceled health policies. democrat ron barber in
numbers sliding, he said he has heard the message loud and clear. he conceded that he fumbled the obama care rollout with both the failure to keep his promise and the deeply flawed health care website. >> that's on me. i mean, we fumbled the rollout on this health care plan. i am very frustrated, but i'm also somebody who if i fumble the ball, i'm going to wait until i get the next play and try to run as hard as i can and do right by the team. so ultimately, i'm the head of this team. we did fumble the ball on it. and what i'm going to do is make sure that we get it fixed. >> he said fumbled repeatedly in the first fix he offered for these repeated fumbles, potential relief for some of the millions of americans who have lost their insurance because either their plans expired or their new policies did not meet obama care's minimum standards. he said he would allow insurers to extend those noncompliant policies for a year, but they would have to alert their customers to better plans under the exchanges. this applies to people who have those paolicies now, they would have to have the right
